edward snowden leak shows the nsa infiltrated the world of online gaming to catch america's real life enemies. >>> good afternoon. welcome to "the lead." we begin with the national lead. if you're one of the thousands of stranded passengers watching us from an airport thanks to the nasty weather, well, go ahead, you have earned that third slice of sbarro pizza. a wintry mix of snow and ice is blanketing much of the country from the southwest to the northeast. in arkansas, one man described the falling sheets of ice as the apocalypse. in places like missouri and virginia, messy frozen roads have made commuting nightmarish, if not all together impossible. air travelers have not fared much better. more than 1500 flights were canceled today and with a fresh round of snow in the forecast poised to cause even more delays, some stranded passengers might be getting worried that they're on the verge of a lord of the flies-esque meltdown if they don't get home soon. cnn meteorologist chad myers has the latest on which parts of the country are getting socked with snow again but first, let's go l

the interactions between tech companies and the nsa. evan perez joins us now from washington. yeah, it's interesting move by these tech companies. they've taken a hit in some overseas markets like china. how can companies that have staked their reputations on the ability to safeguard people's information start to assure customers overseas their information is secure if the nsa can poke in the backdoor? >> that's what's worrying executives of some of the biggest tech companies in if the united states. facebook, apple, twitter, google and move the are all asking the government to help pull back some of the nsa surveillance programs. the challenge for these companies, they are required by law to help the nsa do surveillance. what edward snowden exposed over the last few months is several programs that allow the nsa to access vast amounts of private information. the nsa says it is to prevent terrorism. but often that data is being collected on people who don't have any connection to terrorism. and that's the reason why you see these companies asking the government to change the law so the
where we cannot trust any of those different systems, whether the nsa or other intelligence services we put together. so they all have to be dismantled and start over. >> some people think he did a service by exposing a really aggressive nsa surveillance which could filter in on american citizens, not just foreigners. >> true, that's one -- i don't subscribe to that. i don't think it's a service because i think that had he really felt passionate about it, really felt like he was making change, he might have actually gone -- come back and said okay, i'll go on trial, let me have my say because i'm right. instead he ran and hid and who knows what else he's selling out to the russians right now. >> that's a serious suspicion that you have, charge that you have, that the russians, the russian government of vladimir putin, was actually running him as an agent when he committed these whatever he did. stealing all this information. >> exactly. a suspicion, but i would not be surprised if that's where it started. they're that good. >> how tense would you say the espionage relationship between t
's protected. it's governed by a whole series of laws. and the nsa issue is a broader issue. and you're right. young people rightly are sensitive to the need to maintain their privacy and their internet freedom. and by the way, so am i. that's part of not just our first amendment rights and expectations, but it's particularly something young people care so much about because they spend so much time texting and instagraming and, you know. >> whatever. >> i mean, something's coming up every single day. and so all of us spend more and more of our lives in sign ea si. now the reality is, first of all, we have people who are trying to hurt us. and they communicate through these same systems. if we're going to do better about preventing a terrorist attack, we do want to keep eyes on some bad actors. the second thing is that the same cyberspace that gives us all this incredible information and allows us to reach out around the world makes our bank accounts vulnerable. cybercrime is a huge problem and a growing problem. so we've got to be in there some way to help protect the american people even as

, information we use to keep america safe. >> and the former head of the nsa and said that his activities have permanently damaged u.s. security. >> it's very, very hard. this is the -- this is catastrophic for the safety and security of the american nation. what this very narcissistic young man tag down. >> fox news was told there are questions abouten0s stay and whether he had contact with a foreign national who facilitated his travel to russia. >> all this came out in the sunday programs yesterday, on the cbs one. and i wonder if we have heard from ed snowden or the report are who handled the documents. >> e-mailed glen green walled with the information that snowden had help and couldn't have taken this documents on his own but we have yet to get a sops -- response. fox news found that 37 reports based on nsa leaked documents and of the total, only 25% dealt direct live we known record of american citizens and national security lawyers who deal with government fraud and abuse cases say they're skeptical. >> anything that goes to the heart of what the definition of a whistle blower is, does

security concern stemming from the n.s.a. leaks. this coming six months after former n.s.a. worker edward snowden revealed a sweeping program of surveillance on every day americans. intelligence leaders say the leaks have made the united states less safe at a time when terrorists are ramping up their operations worldwide. our chief intelligence correspondent is live from washington with more on this very important story. >> thank you. and good morning. a review of the n.s.a. leaked documents show that the majority deal with sources and methods and u.s. surveillance activities overseas rather than the privacy rights of american citizens. chairman of the house intelligence committee who receives regular briefings and has access to the raw classified data tells fox news there is evidence suggesting edward snowden had help when he scored some 200,000 documents. >> we know that he did some things capabilitiwise beyond his capabilities meaning he used someone else's help, we believe, to try to steal things from the people of the united states, classified information, information we use to keep
the biggest names in the tech world and yahoo! google and facebook and others are taking aim at how the nsa does business, demanding that the spy agency change its ways. alison kosik in new york with an update on this. >> these are a who's who of wall street, tech giants apple, google, facebook, microsoft, linkedin, twitter and aol banning together and put a letter to president obama and congress and looking to change the way that the government snoops on us while we're online and more specificcally trying to limit the information and collection of information on us. the tech leaders are worried if people won't use their technology because they don't trust it, that will hurt them in the long run. president obama said the nsa does not listen in on phone calls but outside the borders the president says the nsa is more aggressive. the idea of big brother keeping track of our activity online just not sitting well with these companies. john? >> so alison, here is the thing. i feel like facebook and google know more about me than my wife does. isn't it a little bit hypocritical for some of the co
. the interesting thing is the drop in his support came after the revelations about nsa metadata collection and the coverage it got. he hasn't been able to recover among this group since that time. martha: when you look back at the election numbers, when you say did you vote for obama, 55% said yes. the question would you vote for him today, only 40 per s -- onl% say yes. he sold this website that it would be flight their wheel house and they may be disenchanted with that pitch as well. bill: to the irony alert. president obama saying republicans could be responsible for people losing their insurance right before christmas. >> christmastime is no time for congress to tell more than one million of these americans they have lost their unemployment understand. what will happen if congress does not act before they leave on their holiday vacation. bill: it raised eyebrows because 5 million have lost their medical understand since the implementation of obamacare. martha: here is one of the architects of obamacare. harry reid is giving his staffers a pass on the whole plan. karl rove is coming up
to congress earlier this year. >> does the nsa collect any type of data at all for hundreds of millions of americans? >> no, sir. >> it does not? >> not wittingly. heather: the lawmaker calling for prosecution. we have john sensenbrenner with us joining us live. thank you for joining us. >> good morning. heather: clapper has apologized that he did it for the good of the country. is that good enough for you? >> it is definitely not good enough for me. it is a crime to lie to congress and he admitted that he did this and i think that a little bit of a lie as being like a little bit pregnant. a lie is a lie. and the only way that congress can do this properly is with truthful testimony. so that's what's on the books saying that if you lie to congress, and you are one of the original folks putting that together. they use it when they are filing these request to conduct surveillance. what you think about that? >> that was not the original intent of the patriot act. but the original intent was to the government and the justice department would target a non-u.s. person is part of a investigati
learned this week another revelation from edward snowden, that the nsa collects records on cell phones. four billion cell phone records outside the country every day and they can track where those cell phones are so they can track where people are. how severely would you like to restrict the surveillance by the national security agency? >> i would like to apply the fourth amendment to third party records. so when i have a contract with a phone company, i think those are still my records and you can lo at them if you're from the government if you ask a judge. a warrant applies to one person. not to everyone in america. it's absolutely agains the spirit and the letter of the fourth amendment to say th a jue can write one warrant and you can get every phone call in america and that's what's happening. i think it's wrong. it goes against everything america stands for and i will help to fight that all the way to the support. we need to get the supreme court to re-examine our records. >> so, you would ban if you could, all mass data mining. >> i'm for going after terrorists with every tool w
, nobody contracted tb. so, we have all been on flights with somebody that is gross and covering and nsa -- nasty but didn't catch anything. it seems wrong because nobody wants to be by that person but it's not illegal. >> that's the last time i flew with hannity. rebecca, is the airline in any way at fault? it was notified very late in the game. so we can argue back to the passengers, look, we found out almost as soon as you did. does that carry much legal water? >> no, it doesn't. neil, be careful what you're asking for. because just imagine if they were responsible and you walk up to the counter and you start coughing, and they say, ooh, that sounds like a very deep cough coming from your chest. you might tb and we're not letting you on. >> is there any liability on the part of the airline? all these passengers are ticked off. >> of course they're ticked off. but it's what kelly said. exactly. the guy is in line, gets on the plane, the plane takes off, and then all of a sudden, cdc calls tsa, and says, hey, there's a guy on the plane and he is on the no-fly list. the only thing i'm co
in place for the rise of the militant groups in the region. >>> the nsa says of course it's not spying on the cell phones of american citizens, but if it happens to be one of the five billion tracked every day, that pledge doesn't apply to you. top secret documents provided by edward snowden says they gather those billions of records from across the road and help them track the movements of certain people and uncover what may be dama dangerous. they say they do, incidently, obtain location information on certain phones. one manager told the post they gather information from tens of millions of americans that travel abroad with their phones every year. >> vice president joe biden continues his excellent adventure arriving in china overnight. biden told the chinese later that the u.s. does not recognize their air defense zone over the east china sea. they also talked about the nuclear issue. no word if he was able to confirm if he sacked his uncle. i spoke with jon huntsman who left that post to seek the republican nomination in 2012. i asked him what he made of biden's diplomatic effort
that the nsa collects, you know, data on our cell phones and they track our locations via our cell phones. for young voters they don't like the concept of government intruding on your personal life, knowing where you are. i think that's repulsive to them. my guess is that several months worth of continuous revelations along those fronts has damaged the president. >> sam, let me ask you about that. let's stick with the young voters and their growing apparent disapproval of the bristol-mye obama administration and the president himself. do you think, those that a larger part of their disenchantment with this particular president has to do with the fact when they get out of college they won't be able to afford a cell phone because there will be no job for them, because the economic landscape is so bleak for them? >> sure. i totally think that. that's very accurate. you know the thing is one time where the white house was doing well politically this past year was during the government shutdown. it's a weird way to say you're doing well when the entire government stops. i think young voters an
to congress when he said this on march 12. listen. >> does the nsa collect any type of data at all on million attention or hundreds of millions of americans? >> no, sir. >> it does not? >> not wittingly. >> we know that's a lie, too. don't we? >> well, i don't know the details of what he's talking about. i haven't been in the loop on classified information since january of 09. i've been a big supporter of the nsa program. i think it's unfortunate that it got caught up in the irs scandal, which was a scandal. but nsa over the years has donnieman duty for us. i know the senator, i've got a lot of respect for him. i also met jim clapper when he was the air force intelligence officer in korea 25 years ago. so i don't know the details and i'm reluctant to judge it unless i know. >> on a separate note, do you feel like we're in retreat everywhere? you got china, the deal we're cutting in iran. we talked about the ukraine in the green room. what is the over-- what's the main difference in tenor from the administration left and the one now? >> i don't think that barak obama believes in the u.s. as an
, the irs targeting of advocacy groups, nsa overreach, if you like your health care you can keep it. >> the president ordered anwar al awlaki killed by drone strike. >> the president effectively enacted the dream act himself. >> the deep water drilling ban, mr. holder's attempt to criminal justice by enforcing our laws, mr. obama's ignoring immigration laws in many cases. >> what is that? ten reasons? here's a message for the gop, forget impeachment. go out and win an election. joining me now are ryan grim and goldie taylor. thank you goet for coming on the show tonight. >> thank you. >> thanks for having me. >> ryan, what do republicans hope to gain by talking about impeachment when they know it's not going to happen? >> well, people like congressman farenthold are people that think the president wasn't born here. that he's not legitimate and they want him out one way or another. they couldn't beat him in '08, couldn't beat him in 2012. he'll leave in 2016, but they're too impatient for that. this is something they'll be on i think until the day he finally leaves office. >> you kno
they know him. they lied about benghazi, the irs, nsa, fast and furious. nobody believes him anymore. >> uncle omar is not a lie. that's been proven. >> president obama, nephew obama is the liar. >> he's not. by the way, they never asked him two years ago. >> three. >> three years ago from the press office. they never asked him first. this time asked hill and he gave a truthful answer. >> come on. >> one of them that he unequivocally lied about is the video about benghazi. that was a complete fabrication. they arrested a man, used the power and resoces of the government to railroad a guy. >> if you want to go to benghazi do you think it's just possible that the government couldn't tell us the whole truth because things were happening in benghazi that were -- >> purposely lied to the us. >> though there are things we shouldn't know and you would support us not knowing p it is a cia action. >> the that never justifies affirmatively lying about a video. >> we didn't lie about a video. what did he lie about? >> said this was a spontaneous -- >> he knew better. they did know better. >> ho
edward snowden, the nsa leaker. you heard that intelligence is very necessary to thwart these attacks. >> all right, it's frightening. it's also confusing. the assumption is we are getting better not that the space outpacing our efforts. we will unveil more later in our show. thank you, we appreciate it. >>> two americans are detained in north korea. the white house is demanding their release. one is an 85-year-old korean war vet detained since october a. video released over the weekend shows merrill newman reading an apology for crimes against the state. let's bring in cnn's barbara starr. she's at the pentagon watching this situation what do you know? >> reporter: good morning, chris. swedish diplomats have been able to visit newman, but his family, of course, wants him home. >> i can understand that in u.s. and western countries there is misleading information and propaganda about pprk. >> reporter: north korean state media released this video over the weekend of detained american tourist 85-year-old merrill newman reading a handwritten apomg. pyongyang says newman admits he is gui
to be hassled with it. now they have a real problem. the nsa is going after their servers, going after their networks, so they're all rushing to encrypt the user data. they could have done that a long time ago. >> there is legislation that is pending right now that essentially is echoing what these eight tech giants now say they're pushing. do you see the tim cooks and mark zuckerbergs of the world, do you see them climbing the steps of congress to lobby for this? >> i haven't bumped into them in washington, at least not recently. >> not yet. >> i would like to see that happen, certainly, and we could use their support on some of the privacy bills, but again, i think we need to talk more about the amount of personal information that the companies themselves are collecting. that's the reason that the law enforcement agencies and the intelligence agencies go to them. they have the data. if they didn't collect so much data, they would be a less attractive target for the government agencies. >> mark, thank you. >>> the world of weather. it is messy out there for so many of you. air passeng
accountable? when you think about it, anybody held accountable for benghazi? no. the nsa? no. the irs? no. in this case, is it different? robert gibbs, spokesperson for the president for a long time says it is time to can some people. >> this has been a totally unnecessary embarrassment. it's been an embarrassment for activist government in many ways. it will be inexplicable if somebody involved in the creation of the web site doesn't get fired, or a group of people don't get fired. >> somebody involved in the creation of the web site? this is a game, too. this is a scam. no one is going to get fired. someone involved in the creation of the web site. so it's going to be some poor guy in the silicon valley who didn't know what he was doing. what happened to the people leading the bus tour. but it's good politic. >> i saw a couple stories on this topic earlier today. some suggested dan pheiffer who right now is essentially the senior white house advisor. another guy, rob neighbors who said deputy chief of staff, they should be called on the carpet. but then again, what about valerie jarrett
